Chartis returns to AIG name

Chartis Australia has gone back to being called AIG Australia Limited name as part of a global rebrand sparked by their strong economic recovery in the past four years. 
 

Internationally, AIG has completed the repayment to the US Government of US$182b, as well as bringing US government ownership in the company to just under 16% (September 2012). At current valuation, the remaining government ownership is worth approximately US$8b.

The rebrand follows research conducted with global customers and partners that revealed the AIG brand to be a stronger representation of the company's objectives.  

AIG CEO Noel Condon says, "AIG has over 50 years of history in Australia and we take pride in the fact that the AIG brand is widely recognised in the country. The return to our former name truly exhibits a new and exciting phase of our organisation."

A small business for CGT purposes is: “an individual, partnership, company or trust that is carrying on a business, and has an aggregated turnover of less than $2 million.”
